  1. Heat the oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and sauté for 2 Minutes. Add the Mince and fry for 2 Minutes. Whisk the vegan gravy sauce (which comes in a sachet with the Mince) with the cold water and pour it over the mince. Stir in the tomato paste, chill, sugar, tinned tomatoes, cocktail tomatoes, balsamic vinegar, cumin, paprika and water. Simmer for 12-15 minutes until thickened. Stir in the lentils and season to taste.
  2. Assemble the Sloppy Joes by adding some of the Mince mixture onto the bottom half of each roll. Add a sprinkling of chopped onion, coriander and micro herbs and top it off with the top half of the roll.

TIP: This veggie mince filling also works great in wraps or with nachos. Just add more chilli if you want to give it an extra kick.
